Non-Invasive Analysis for T790M Mutations of EGFR Using a Selective Amplification Method
5 May 2015
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) T790M mutation is associated with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) resistance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, tissue availability limits the genotyping of EGFR T790M mutation in a clinical setting. The aims of the work presented in this poster are to develop a blood-based, non-invasive approach to detecting the EGFRT790M mutation in advanced NSCLC patients, using PointMan™ EGFR DNA Enrichment Kit, which is a novel method for selective amplification of genotype specific sequences.
